South Korea: Republic in East Asia
South Korea is a country in East Asia, constituting the southern part of the Korean Peninsula and sharing a land border with North Korea.

Its capital, Seoul, is a major global city and half of South Korea's over 51 million people live in the Seoul Capital Area, the fourth largest metropolitan economy in the world.
